Meeting culture and 3 tips on how to improve it

Looking back at ISE

Times like these offer an opportunity to have a retrospective glance in the rear-view mirror. So we would like to share our story about the Integrated Systems Europe convention that took place earlier this year. We are happy to have seen so many of you face-to-face one last time before the COVID-19 restrictions came into action. We also had the opportunity to showcase a brand-new product and even flew home with a best-of-show award. So, without any further introduction: here’s a brief account of the highlights.

Meeting culture and 3 tips on how to improve it

Did you know that the average person builds approximately one thousand relationships during his or her lifetime?

A mature approach to technology

New technology for the office has huge potential, but it doesn’t have to be in your face. Much like smart car technology, most of the new features of a connected office can work ”under the hood” without us ever noticing them or having to figure out how systems work. Cue the “single purpose device”.

How smart offices will save time and money

Digital transformation is now firmly on the agenda of facility managers as we’ve seen intelligent or smart buildings make smart use of the new connected technology. The next step is smart offices. Using sensors, cameras, software and new singular purpose devices you can support, strengthen and streamline daily office operations. In this article we will take you through a variety of examples of how technology will revolutionize the office.

Room booking is more than a list of features

It’s more like the sum of its parts. The brand new Evoko Naso, released just yesterday, has been developed by our award winning design teams to give you the very best meeting room booker to date. Since we build both the hardware and software we can guarantee best in class quality, security and functionality.

Reinventing the lobby for the right first impression

Everyone knows that first impressions can be very important, particularly in business. Impressions about your company forms as soon as a customer or visitor steps foot in your lobby. Given this, it’s important that your entryway conveys a message that’s isn’t at odds with the company culture – and that it makes a lasting positive impression.

R&R Properties has chosen the Evoko Liso as its room booking solution of choice for Ts117, a brand new co-working facility that services the needs of 50 companies in one smart office space.

A meeting room booking system that is easy to use

Maybe you already see the benefits in adopting a digital meeting room booking system when it comes to analyzing meeting space usages, optimizing daily operations and branding you as a modern company. However, you may be unsure which one is the easiest for your staff to actually use. In this article we’ll show you how Evoko Liso is to use in everyday situations.

A week without Evoko

Recently an electric power outage at Swedish Outdoor Association broke the connection that makes meeting room booker Evoko Liso work. The following events where something like ”total anarchy” according to the companys CTO Erik Ehrner. We called him up to ask about how it was to lose the now established room booking functionality for a week.

Improving meeting culture

People being kicked out of meeting rooms, large groups having to cram into a huddle room and others frantically seeking a private place to take that all important call. These are all daily occurrences and why meeting culture is an important thing to cultivate. Here’s some concrete pointers on how to do it.

How to prepare for a great meeting

Having a great meeting can never be guaranteed. But what you can do is to prepare for it. Make this your new checklist and boost your meeting efficiency.

Then add a modern coworking space where several companies must share technical solutions and you have yourself a real challenge.

Please contact info@evoko.se.

Evoko believes in green

The Evoko Room Manager has moved to a new gift box which will start to ship soon. Besides having a new and more modern design, it is also smaller. This is because we have decided to remove the power adapter from the box since more than 90% of the installation are made using PoE, thus resulting in that the power adapters just are thrown away. Not very environmental friendly! For the remaining 10% that still want to use the power adapter this is offered as a free accessory. Just remember to let us know that you need power adapter when you place the order.

Evoko Support back in Sweden

There is no place like home. The Evoko support has moved back home to our headquarters in Sweden. The reason is that we strongly believe we will be able to deliver an even better Evoko experience, by keeping our core functions close together. The positive feedback was overwhelming from our users in support errands. It is simply heart warming, thank you all!

Evoko Evo is flying

Our newest release, the Evoko Room Manager Evo has been welcomed with open arms. Especially by companies with a large number of meeting rooms.

Evoko adds support for Google

July 2012 InAVate bring attention to the fact that Evoko adds support for Google.

Hassle free booking with decision-making support included.

If you have a large number of meeting rooms, you face two challenges: Using them efficiently and actually benefitting from all your meetings. Evoko Room Manger EVO is a new software version of Evoko’s ingenious room-booking product, which thanks to its monitoring and statistics functions meets both these challenges. Evoko Room Manager clarifies the booking situation with the use of touch-screens located outside each meeting room. With Evoko Room Manager EVO, the company’s system administrator controls and monitors all touch-screens directly from his computer; at the same time, management gains access to a valuable decision-making tool based on the employees’ meeting patterns.

Västerbottens-Kuriren

They went from post-it notes and colleagues not used to booking rooms in calendars to modern efficiency with Evoko Room Managers. And it works. It is now easier for the 150 people at the editorial of the Swedish newspaper Västerbottens-Kuriren, to keep track of the meeting rooms. Today they have almost no double bookings and the clarity as well as the room usage have increased.

Unitedlog Group

Increased book-ability of meeting rooms, spontaneous meetings and no more double-bookings are some of the positive effects Unitedlog Group has noticed after including Evoko Room Manager in their business life.

Happen AB

It was love at first sight when John Jureit, a partner at Happen, saw Evoko Room Manager for the first time when visiting a sub-contractor and thought: ”We need this product”.

Timeless design awarded another prize.

The Evoko Room Manager, our room-booking solution with touch-sensitive screens that display the status of a meeting room at the door, has been awarded yet another design prize: the 2011 Good Design Award.

Success in the US to continue with the opening of a New York office.

The need to use every square foot in this megacity as efficiently as possible acquires deep-laden symbolism when Evoko Unlimited AB opens its first local office in the US. The Evoko Room Manager is a room-booking solution that uses touch-sensitive displays outside of meeting rooms to guarantee correct bookings, and thus contribute to efficient room use. This Swedish innovation, which clearly displays the booking status of the meeting room at the door, first came to attention in the US in 2011, at InfoComm in Las Vegas. The elegant Scandinavian design of the product has won several prestigious international prizes, and the system is today marketed in several parts of the US and in Canada.
